Donation to Bull Bay residents

Wisynco Group Limited has donated 16,000 500ml bottles of WATA and approximately 2,500 bottles of Freshhh Orange Juice, much-needed supplies, to residents of Bull Bay in St Andrew, which has been under quarantine by the Government of Jamaica since Friday, March 13 following the discovery of the island’s first novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) case there.

The donations were made on Wednesday, March 18 via Food For the Poor, one of the non-governmental organisations (NGOs) drafted by the Government to assist with the distribution of essential items from checkpoints set up in the Seven Miles and Eight Miles areas of Bull Bay.

 

 

“We decided to make the contribution when the plight of the residents in the area was broadcast in the media,” a release from Wisynco quotes Marketing Coordinator Tiffany Simmonds.

Residents quarantined took to social and traditional news media with complaints of their inability to replenish food supplies due to the imposition of restricted movement, and loss of income due to absence from their work and businesses.
